Subway Service Alerts: Weekend and Following Week

June 14, 2012

It’s another green light weekend, as there are no, repeat no, planned disruptions affecting service at any of the local subway stations. For those planning weekend trips that involve trains not serving local stations, or service in far-flung portions of those lines that do converge here, the MTA has created an interactive subway map, The Weekender, that can help you.

The following week, the only planned change affecting service here is that from 12:30 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. Tuesday to Friday, there will be no 3 trains running in either direction. However, 2 trains will be running on the same route, serving both Clark Street and Borough Hall stations.

Subway Service Alerts: Weekend and the Following Week

May 31, 2012

At last, it will be clear tracks in all directions this weekend on lines serving local subway stations. Those using the A/C line for travel to and from Manhattan should know that on Saturday and Sunday Brooklyn bound C trains will not be making their usual local stops between 145th Street and Canal Street. If you’re coming back from the Upper West Side, Midtown West, or Chelsea, you can catch a southbound D train, which will be making the usual C train stops, and take it to 125th, 59th, 42nd, 14th, or West 4th, where you can change to a Brooklyn bound A or C. From Soho, catch the E train at Spring Street and go one stop to Canal, where you can change to the A or C.

The following week, from 12:01 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. Tuesday through Friday, there will again be no service on the 4/5 line to or from Brooklyn. As before, the 3 train, which will be running normally during these hours, will have its route extended to New Lots Avenue for the convenience of those traveling into Brooklyn. Also, at the same times, Brooklyn bound A trains will be re-routed to the F line between West 4th and Jay Street-Metro Tech. Consequently, there will be no Brooklyn bound service at High Street (the C doesn’t run during these hours). North Heights residents returning late at night can take and A or F to Jay and change there for a Manhattan bound A to High Street or, more likely, use the 2 or 3 tho Clark Street or N (which replaces the R late at night) to Court Street.
